Hopefully, this omicron variant will be over soon and teams will get all their players back, once healthy, and we'll get to see these teams going up against each other at full strength. Then we'll get some "real NBA action", as Clyde says.

well indy isnt going to just give him away. I just don't see it. Everyone once in a while he puts up a huge game but he is way too inconsistent and his shooting is extremely overrated.

Also Embiid gives him the business and now Ayton punked him all night. He is a great help defender but I get some Hassan Whiteside vibes in terms of gets a ton of blocks but not an actual impact defender.

i think i saw indy is asking for 2 first round picks for turner. i would pass on that.

instead of going after turner, we should go after brogdon. we don't really need another big, especially with mitch starting to round back into form.


Mitch has looked much better recently.

I mentioned that a few days ago...maybe even to sham. Brogdon should realistically be the target. A big guard that can be effective on and off ball.

I just saw something across my social media that the knicks called about Caris LeVert. I don't see the point of LeVert way too redundant with someone like RJ.

would have to be in the offseason. he can't be traded this year.

this COULD be an epic deadline with so many good(not great) players possibly on the move

Jeremi Grant
CJ McCollum
Ben Simmons
Tobias Harris
Domantas Sabonis
Myles Turner
Caris LeVert
De'Aaron Fox
Harrison Barnes
Christian Wood

curious to see how many get moved

Turner could make a difference for a team that needs a stretch 5.

But other than Simmons and possibly CJ and Turner, this group of players is just a pile of mediocrity by NBA standards. None of these players are difference-makers.

It's lateral move season.

Yes and I think we can add Robert Covington and Jusuf Nurkix of the Blazers, both of which are expiring contracts. Interesting what Portland would do with them given that this would be a wash year for them and they might likely have to see what assets they can get for these two to help them retool for next season.

Kuminga very impressive. I can see him being able to play alongside Draymond, Wiggins and the Splash Brothers in a lineup that the Warriors would use to demolish teams.

I don't know. Barnes was a starter on a champonship team and Grant was a starter on a contender. now they are better players.
Fox and Sabonis are borderline all stars. I know they all aren't franchise players, but they would definitely make a difference on a lot of good teams.

Out of all the players listed I’d take Fox. Too much focus on what he can’t do and ignoring the things he’s great at. Yes , great.

This the same mindset the Lakers had when they traded for Westbrook.

Hard pass on Fox.

while both are terrible from three, Fox is a better defender and shooting better from everywhere else on the floor.

Lakers didn’t need a point guard with Lebron, and that is absolutely what we need.

Certain people think RJ is Lebron so we also don’t need a PG anymore. Can’t make this stuff up!

LOL at the Suns not wanting to give Ayton the max.

I hope some team outbids us for Turner.
